I saw one the other day. Good looking car, looks like it took some queues from Ferrari(headlights) but still looks very vettish.

The american cars are always the best bang for your buck. The new RUSTang GT is going to be the car to beat, for the price.

i dunno, but the new Vette seems a bit soft.. want to sell more on the European market.. so it's resembles more like a Ferrari than an old skool Vette..

Yes, it's the reason why a car with bars made of metal binded together can stay with Porsche's within 3 times it's price range. :)

It's the reason why, a car with supercar performance can be made that a middleclass income can afford. *th-up*

I have no desire to own a Corvette myself but there is no doubt that they are excellent performing cars. Check out the power laps from BBC's Top Gear with the C6 Corvette turning a very impressive lap time. Faster than the CSL, 911 GT3, Viper SRT-10 etc....

And that is just the regular C6. Hopefully they will test the new Z06 when it becomes available (assuming it will be sold in the UK). Also some of the lap times are slower becuase they were in the wet and this makes a big difference obviously. I think Jeremy Clarkson said they usually subtract 3 seconds to get the dry time.

How in the hell can the Carrera S be over 2 seconds faster than the 911Turbo? :confused:

And the 911 Turbo is only .8 seconds faster than the 350Z? :confused:

Something is extremely FUBAR!!!!! I don't buy into those numbers.

I agree that some of those numbers are questionable, but remember that FI'ed cars are nutoriously difficult to manage on a road course. This is why BMW phylosophy won't consider FI'ed on they're M cars.

Like I said some of the times are in the wet, and it doesnt identify which ones in this list. It is right off Top Gears site. I really do not think they would make the numbers up. I have seen most of the episodes anyway and saw them do it. But like I said this list does not have the wet times identified. And its not like they are doing quarter mile times here. Certain cars are more suited for certain tracks. Im guessing the 911 Turbo time was in the wet so subtract three seconds.

Oh and another problem with the list is it doesnt specify the generation of car and the 997 Carrera S is quite fast. So take it as you wish but those are the times they put down. Same driver everytime, with the only differences being weather conditions obviously.

Which review are you looking for? There was one on the isle of man with the M1, and M5. It has been on more than once though I think. Its also been on Fifth Gear. I have all of them I believe. If you use bittorrent check out http://gear.viper007bond.com They have all the episodes as they air plus some archived ones.

I'm not denying that those are the exact numbers advertised on the site, but they are highly questionable, like T-las mentioned. And it's true, we don't know the years of cars tested, which again makes things look very innacurate. Just as an example though...I'm positive the 993T would still outgun the latest 997S on any track.

The Z number is the one that boggles my mind.

And it's funny that you mention the 'wet' times, because the Carrera S time you mentioned, was "in the wet" too. So it's still over 2 seconds above the 911T, regardless of generation.

Nothing against you bro...just some of the numbers don't add up.

Sorry if I came on a little strong there, I didn't intend to at all. And I see what you're saying for sure about some of the times. I don't know why there would be such huge discrepencies. It could also be an error in the list. I had at one time found a better list with more cars on it. I will see if I can find it again.

Check out http://gear.viper007bond.com It is a good site with up to date episodes from Top Gear and Fifth Gear as well as a good discussion forum concerning these shows if any one is interested

I found a discussion while searching for this list specifically on the 911 Turbo time and many people felt that the track was too tight for the turbo to really go to work.
